are reposing, and a man with a bundle under his arm, and a stick 
in his hand, is seen approaching. This delightfully rural scene 
exhibits the agreeable aspect of a fine summer's day, and the light 
fleecy clouds which have partially obscured the sun, admit its bril-

6(5. — A View of a Water-Mill 

Described in Smith's Catalogue (part \i. p. [56, n° 1 171 as follows : 

« A view of a water-mill and adjoining cottages, situate in a 
well-wooded country. The composition of this admirable picture 
presents, on the right, a thick cluster of trees, the ample foliage of 
which partly conceals the cottages and overshadows the mill; the 
latter is placed near the centre of the view, with its gable and wheel 
towards the spectator, and a plank lies over some timber-work from 
the adjacent bank. The mill-stream, which extends over the greater 
part of the fore-ground, is beautifully fringed with bulrushes, and 
other aquatic weeds, and two pollard willows rise from its bank. 
The figures which animate the scene are also by Hobbema, and 
consist of a man angling, another looking on. and a third crossing 
a slight rustic bridge : beyond these are seen two cottages among 
trees. Light fleecy clouds float over the azure sky. and aid the effect 
by alternate shade and sunshine. Painted with a rich impasto of 
colour, accompanied by admirable firmness of hand. »

THE COMPLETE WORK

REMBRANDT 



EDITOR'S PREFACE 

'\{?/®>iJ® ERE we ca ^ e ^ upon t° decide which of the great 
', ,, \)'. i(k masters enjovs the largest share of present popu- 
■ vf/v/RP laritv, we should certainly give the palm, not to 

BMW - <-> l 

the divine Raphael, darling of Popes and princes, 
not to the colossal Michelangelo, not to the Flemish pain- 
ter-prince, Rubens, whose contemporaries showered riches and 
honours upon him, but to the modest Dutchman, who painted less 
for the delight of others than for his own satisfaction, who was 
forgotten and neglected by the world around him, and who ended 
his days in poverty and humiliation. That it has been reserved 
for our own age to estimate Rembrandt's genius aright, and to 
assign him his true rank in the hierarchy of art, may be explained 
by the fact that we of this generation have a deeper comprehen- 
sion of pictorial quality, of characterization, of objective truth, 
than the critics of the last two centuries. Rembrandt's art, based 
as it is on the earnest study of Nature, is not only enthralling 
to the expert; it fascinates the amateur by its simplicity and 
directness of conception, by its depth and intensity of emotion, 
by the magic of that mysterious light in which it bathes its figures. 
Thus it satisfies both artistic tendencies, charming alike the realist 
and the idealist. Significant proof of the estimation in wieh Rem- 
brandt is held may be found in the rapid succession of studies 
and publications dealing with him during the last twenty years, 
and the high prices commanded by his pictures. One of these 
was recently bought for a national Museum for 20.000 guineas, 
and certain rare plates among his etchings fetch from 1000 to 
i5oo guineas at auction. 

The publisher, whose name appears below, has been for years 
a fervent worshipper of the master. In his capacity as an art- 
dealer he has made it, as far as possible, his principal aim to 

— 339 - 



find out and acquire die works of Rembrandt, and over sixty 
pictures by the great painter have passed through his hands. 
It will be readily understood how eagerly he undertook the publi- 
cation of the monumental work for wich Dr. Wilhelm Bode has 
been collecting material throughout some fifteen years. He knew 
Dr. Bode to be not only the foremost living- critic of the old masters 
in general, but the greatest authority of our times on Rembrandt 
in particular. 

That such an enterprise involved a large outlay, and pre- 
sented difficulties of an unusual kind, is obvious, if it be taken 
into account that the master's pictures are scattered throughout 
the length and breadth of the civilized world — from St. Petersburg 
to Chicago — that the author was obliged to visit every public and 
private gallery in order to examine and describe Rembrandt's 
acknowledged works, and search for others hitherto unrecognized, 
and that it was further necessary to send an experienced photo- 
grapher to many remote places and private houses, to photo- 
graph even- authenticated work by the most recent orthochromatic 
process, as a preliminary to its faithful reproduction in heliogravure. 

Author and publisher have done their utmost to produce a 
work unique of its kind, for it deals with the master on a scale and 
with a completeness never before attempted, and of such a quality 
as to render it a fitting literary monument to the great Dutchman. 
The object of the undertaking was to place the whole of the master's 
pictures before the student, not only in detailed descriptions, but 
by means of the most finished reproductions. 

In conclusion, the publisher ventures to hope that the efforts 
which have been made to carry out this great work worthily will 
find their reward in the sympathetic recognition of the artdoving 
public.
